    Kevin O’Leary is mostly known for his role as an investor on the hit TV show “Shark Tank”. Calling himself Mister Wonderful, the brazen, no-nonsense serial entrepreneur makes us both laugh and cringe every time he takes the floor.

    Talking at an event in 2017, he goes real about the hardships entrepreneurs need to be ready to face.

    His full speech will no doubt act as a brutal eye-opener to many aspiring business owners.

    Here’s more of it:

    “The personal sacrifices of entrepreneurship are huge. There is no soccer game on Saturday. There is no Sunday dinner with the family. You’re working. […] You have to understand you’re going into a huge lifestyle change. And I tell people it’s not for everybody.”

    Watch the full video, it gets even more “real”.

    Speaking Head What do you think of O’Leary’s advice, including the one he gives a student asked to choose between his fiancee and his company?
